Collier, Minerva (2 JAN 1866 - 29 JUL 1901)

Mrs. Minerva Collier, wife of H. J. Collier of the town of Hoard, Clark County, quietly passed away Monday morning at 10 o'clock, at the age of 35 years. She was ill with quick consumption only three weeks when she died.

The funeral services were held at 11:30, Wednesday morning at the Baptist Church, Rev. DeLapp of Medford officiating. The remains were interred in the Union Cemetery south of the village.

Mrs. Collier, nee Wilcox, was born near Toronto, Canada, on Jan. 2nd, 1866. She lived with her parents until 1896, when she went to Minneapolis to live with her brother, Charles. On Feb. 8th, 1900, she was united in marriage to H. J. Collier, at Minneapolis, and came here and lived on his farm, one mile north and six miles west of this village, until the time of her death. Besides a husband and his five children she leaves an aged father in Canada, and three brothers, one is a very prominent lawyer in Yankton, N.D., and the other two hold very high positions with the Metropolitan Insurance Co. at Minneapolis, to mourn her loss. Mrs. Collier was a quiet, industrious woman, who made fast friends where ever she went and was loved by all who knew her.

We join with her many friends in extending our heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved.
